(aka floatation tank, sensory deprivation tank, or isolation tank)
A tank filled with water that has enough Epsom salt mixed in to allow a person to float on the surface. The water is kept at skin-temperature, making it imperceptible, and the tank is soundproof and pitch-black, creating a place for our bodies to be free from gravity and all stimulation from the outside world.
It may be the most effortless thing you've ever done for getting rid of pain and stress.
Float Tank Benefits
Floating is not a new age fad. It was developed by a medical doctor almost 60 years ago and has undergone rigorous medical studies that have been peer reviewed and published in medical journals.
Many people seem to be surprised to discover how much actual scientific research has been done on floatation and float tanks. Yet all the benefits listed are taken from over 200 research articles containing both lab experiments and case studies published between the 1960′s and today.
What we love most about floating is that almost every one of these benefits lasts for several days beyond the float. And the more you float – the better it gets!
It’s true! The more often the float tank is used, the stronger the effects become, the longer they last and the more efficient the person gets at attaining the benefits every single time they float.
Floating is an effortless way to create a path and a way towards a better life.
